It was a pretty notable stroke on MRI. I spent some time talking to his wife, then went home.
The next day I was absolutely shocked when I was on rounds, and he got in the elevator with me! He looked great, was dressed in his street clothes, and I began talking to him. His speech was excellent. It was the most remarkable recovery I'd ever seen in such a a short time.
It was the patient's identical twin brother, coming to visit him.
I'm legendary for my stellar performances on rounds. This was another one.
